...Actually after reading blacklabel try to defend the Sony hack, just forget my last post. I wash my hands of this fanboy crap.
im not defending it. i dont even know what happened, but my account is just fine. my credit card statement didnt change, and i can still log in just fine, so i guess im one of the few people who got lucky. sucks to be those other 77 million though who got hacked right? if they really wanted my personal information, why dont they just ask google or microsoft to sell it to them? why take the time trying to find loopholes over a sony playstation just to obtain it? hell just send me a facebook friend request if you really have to. im not that hard to find. everything you wanted is all there for the public to see anyways right? even if i didnt want it to be seen, chances are 10 other people have already seen it for whatever their purpose is.
the xbox security was easilly breached by a 5 year old and out come the microsoft fanboys in full force here to try to spin this by attacking sony and whatever happened over there to divert the attenion away from the fact that for the last 5 months, even a 5 year old was able to breach his way into an xbox one account,
with one simple press of a button, little timmy could have accessed your library of porn you so conveniently left on your xbox or whatever, trash talked all your friends , exposed himself to the lovely call of duty community, whipped out his junk in an online game of Uno and started helicoptering the girl he was playing online with over kinect, and perhaps even took the time to modify your console while you left him unattended! if it was easy enough for them to gain access just by pressing a space bar, then what else could a 5 year old do with your system?
i mean i thought i was pretty hardcore when i was 5 years old and knew how to hook up a nintendo to a vcr. i didnt know nothing about beaching microsoft security systems or anything extreme like that. this kid is a genius. he deserves a job for microsoft security, as they obviously are not qualified to discover security loopholes and vulnerabilities when this kind of crap happens. with all of the money microsoft has, maybe they should invest some of it on keyboards that come with space bars and give them to their development/security/quality control testing teams.
power to the space bar baby!

TC if you think things like this are embarrassing, never search "Playstation Network Outage" on google. If this 5 year old stumbling across a bug is embarrassing, I can't imagine your reaction to 77 million accounts being hacked.
Something similar happened to MS, they just did a much better job hiding it.

This is no shock to me. Microsoft engineers put 110% of there time thinking up ways to GET your money. so of course your kid can log in with a few space bars. More chances to buy stuff.
I thought this was an article about a kids cussing infront of the Kinnect, and it racing to the internet and showing him porn with those words in the title.
M$, always one step ahead. Thank you for sharing.

Did MIcrosoft also install rootkits on your computer to alter your os and spy on you? And, when called out, then proceed to release an uninstaller that not only didn't uninstall the rootkits, but injected more software onto your computer and exposed it further to vulnerabilities? Did M$ ever do anything to you that required multiple government investigations to fix?
